The President of the Republic, Gustavo Petro, revealed that the murder of the Paraguayan prosecutor Marcelo Pecci, which took place in Colombia (on an island of Barú) on May 10, was committed by the Uruguayan drug trafficker Marset. The conclusion of the authorship of the crime was quoted by Petro from a portal called Rebelion.org.
“The Uruguayan Sebastián Marset was identified as the one who ordered the death of the Paraguayan prosecutor Marcelo Pecci, murdered in May on the island of Barú, in the Colombian Caribbean, during his honeymoon last May. One of his murderers confessed the origin of the crime, ”says that portal.
And it goes further: “Marset, 31, associated with the First Uruguayan Cartel and head of a criminal organization in Paraguay dedicated to drug trafficking and money laundering, one of the intellectual authors of the crime, He has been a fugitive from Uruguayan and Paraguayan justice since he received a passport from the Uruguayan government.”.
In addition, through his Twitter account, the Colombian president warned that drug lords have increased their criminal level by crossing borders and become a problem that is no longer regional, but global.
In the same way, the head of state indicated that many years ago it ceased to be an obvious binational problem between Colombia and the United States, to become a headache in other latitudes, hanging as an example the specific case of the homicide of the Paraguayan judicial official, Pecci.
“The investigation into the murder of Paraguayan prosecutor Marcelo Pecci committed by Uruguayan drug trafficker Marset in Colombian territory shows that drug trafficking ceased to be a Colombian-American bilateral problem long ago and is today an American and global problem,” Petro trilled.
And he added, in another message, about the investigation process carried out by the Colombian judicial authorities: “The anti-drug strategy used until now has strengthened, instead of weakening, the forces of the mafias. The Colombian prosecutor’s office here managed to show investigative efficiency. Congratulations”.
